No problems here except for the usual slowness in refreshing the pages.

It's that damn AS.EXT-N.com crap that seems to be slowing mine down!:(
Just add as.ext-n.com to your hosts file. Depending on your operating system, the hosts file is here:

Windows Vista = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 98/ME = C:\WINDOWS

or for you Unix folks it's in /etc/hosts.

Using notepad, add a line to the hosts file that looks like this:

127.0.0.1 as.ext-n.com

Then save the file and reboot. That will effectively tell your computer to ignore requests to get data from that host so if that system is hanging up pages from loading quickly, it should instantly solve the problem. I've got a few hundred of these entries in mine with most of the ad servers in it (but not that one....fixing that now) and it greatly improves surfing speed on sites with a lot of ad and tracking cookie cruft.

Best,
